  • The impact of farming on river banks on water quality of the rivers

    Abstract A study was carried out in a strip of a river in the dry and rainy seasons to assess the effect of farming along river banks on the quality of water in rivers. The results showed that there was an increase in the concentration of nitrate in the water downstream in both the rainy and dry seasons. In both rainy and dry seasons, the total nitrogen in the soil was highest (p ...

  • River Monitoring

    The monitoring of River water has impications not only on the environmental impacts of heavy metals but also upon the quality of drinking water. THis case study covers an analyser installed in a remote location using low voltage power supplies to suppliment the local mains power supply which cannot be relied ...

  • River Basin

    A river basin is an extent of land where water from rain and melting snow or ice drains downhill into a body of water, such as a river, lake, reservoir, estuary, wetland, sea or ocean. The river basin includes both the streams and rivers that convey the water as well as the land surfaces from which water drains into those channels, and is separated from adjacent basins by a drainage divide. The ...

  • Water Quality Parameters Along Rivers

    Water samples have been collected from a part of Surma River along different points and analyzed for various water quality parameters during dry and monsoon periods. Effects of industrial wastes, municipal sewage, and agricultural runoff on river water quality have been investigated. The study was conducted within the Chattak to Sunamganj portion of Surma River, which is significant due to the ...

  • River water monitoring for infiltration project

    The infiltration project in the watercollection area of the Vitens pumping station in Epe (the Netherlands) was started in 1998. From September until April, water is taken in from a small river and infiltrated after transportation. Before transportation to the water collection area the water is monitored by a Mosselmonitor and the TOXcontrol. The TOXcontrol was chosen after a long Evaluation ...

  • Microbiological water quality of the Nišava River

    Microorganisms are the ideal indicators of the organic pollution of the surface waters because of their ability to promptly respond to environmental changes. Due to poor economic situation and lack of law implementation, most wastewaters in Serbia are released directly into a surface water recipient without any, or a limited, treatment. This practice has created numerous highly polluted ...

  • Controlling the water level of a river dam case study

    SmartScan25 provides an efficient solution for controlling water level of the Wardha river reservoir from a distance of 40m (131ft) thus preventing draughts and floods to the district of Amravati, India. Upper Wardha Dam is build up on the Wardha River at a height of 36m (118ft) and 7km (4.35mi) length and situated on the boundary of Amravati and Wardha Districts, India. Controlling the water ...

  • River water pollution in Indonesia: an input-output analysis

    Data from global environmental monitoring activities have shown alarming environmental conditions in many developing countries. Environmental policies that could improve the environment significantly, while at the same time maintaining the growth of economic activities are needed. Using an input-output analysis, this paper researches such policies with a view to applying them to Indonesia's river ...

  • Water quality assessment of a polluted urban river

    Urban rivers in Latin America are heavily impacted by human activities that affect their functions and services. This paper shows the results of a water quality assessment for the Reconquista River, the second most polluted urban river in Argentina. They allowed the identification of the main processes of transport of pollutants and the prioritisation of different areas of the basin for ...

  • A hydrodynamic water quality model for propagation of pollutants in rivers

    Numerical modelling can be a useful tool to assess a receiving water body's quality state. Indeed, the use of mathematical models in river water quality management has become a common practice to show the cause-effect relationship between emissions and water body quality and to design as well as assess the effectiveness of mitigation measures. In the present study, a hydrodynamic river water ...

  • Perfluorooctanoate and perfluorooctane sulfonate in South African river water

    This study examined the prevalence of perfluorooctanoate (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) in river water samples (n = 56) and suspended solids (n = 5) from three major Western Cape rivers, in South Africa. Solid phase extraction (SPE) followed by liquid chromatography combined with electrospray tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) using an analytical ...
